The 160ft ship dimensions
Herbert Tomesen, of Artitec, had told me that he believed that the ship Vogelstruis was similar to the dimensions for the 160ft ship that I just listed. The Vogelstruis was a ship of the Amsterdam Chamber of the Dutch United East India Company (the VOC). The Vogelstruis was active from the summer of 1652 up to the first day of the Three Days Battle on 28 February 1653, when the ship was captured by the English. These dimensions were 160ft x 36ft x 15ft x 8ft, I believe.
